@SFAN - LG Optimus Net has 512Mb of ram but not Optimus Pro(it has 256 Mb).
@anonymous - "The Optimus One P500 already has 512MB RAM. The only difference seems to be the 33% bump in the processor speed. Would have loved a 3.5" WVGA and a MSM7230. That would have been the real upgrade" - the RAM is doubled against LG Optimus Pro not Optimus One.
@Marius - No,SFAN is right about quantity of RAM for Gingerbread.I have Motorola Milestone,overclocked to 900MHz and with 256Mb of RAM.I can run Gingerbread,but only for the primary purpose.I CAN`T play heavy games and system always close the launcher(it must be reloaded every time) when i open some app.
@Ruwin - Samsung Galaxy S with 256Mb of RAM?It can`t be true.Maybe is locked by kernel,but i doubt... The usable amount of RAM is never equal to the amount indicated in the specifications for the phone,because some amount of RAM is used by system.

I cannot see why would i replace my Optimus One with Optimus Net. I have 512 Mb of ram too, Gingerbread and 800Mhz CPU (of course, by overclocking it, but nevertheless...). And runs smoother and faster than a stock Galaxy S (not talking of heavy 3D games, though Nova and similar games are not a problem for O1) !

Again, the deciding factor for me is the launch price of this phone (and of course a few reviews).

Well i was just about sold on the Optimus Pro UNTIL the video reached the 2:02 mark. No flash for the camera! Grr. I wanted to like this phone so much! Finally an android with a non-slider physical QWERTY keyboard that is GSM friendly. SO close on this one. Guess i'll still have to wait for RIM's slow-ass to grind out the Blackberry 9900.
Why no flash! lol...It makes for awesome flashlights in dark corners or other sticky situations.

Furthermore, 800mhz is definitely not fast enough for web browsing with Flash.
The Optimus Net looks quite spiffy for its spec. I want to get it, but I hope it will release for similiar to or lower than Optimus One's price, considering that the Galaxy S is getting cheaper and cheaper where I live (cheaper than even the Xperia X10 now).
'The LG Optimus Net on the other hand looks set to take the place of the highly popular Optimus One model. It has a 3.2" HVGA screen and uses an MSM7227T chipset too with 800MHz CPU but double the RAM, 512MB.'
The Optimus One P500 already has 512MB RAM. The only difference seems to be the 33% bump in the processor speed. Would have loved a 3.5" WVGA and a MSM7230. That would have been the real upgrade
I would love to improve audio quality to be on par with galaxy series.
